Does anyone know if there is a place where Classic Greenhopper functionality that will be carried over when the Classic boards are dropped is listed?
For example, will version hierarchies be supported?
Sprints and Versions are quite different concepts. They were only linked in the Classic Greenhopper due to the limitations of the old model.
However even with sprints the concept of Hierarchies of Versions is still very useful. E.g. I have an 18month release with 3 major milesones. These Milestones are tracked as sub-versions of the overall release version. Now I can say what is in milestone1, 2 and 3 and they are all in the overall release.
How I create sprints to deliver to those milestones is completely orthogonal.
Support for hierarchies of versions is a significant feature for Enterprise releases.
It is features like these which I would like to ensure are being migrated to the new Agile Board concept. It feels at times like the Agile police have taken over and what made Jira and Greenhopper so powerful (its flexibility for those who have to work within a non-ideal Agile world) is being lost.
...It's true that there are projects in Jira; but they are merely a way to cut off issues, to tell them apart from other sections of work and to apply rules that are specific to that team (the schemes)....
